In the mix swap

I am hosting a swap over on UKS. Now regular readers will know i just love making mini books but i fancied a challenge.

So i decided to host a swap for mixed media which is so popular at the moment. Here are the details

For this swap you must make a mini book (No bigger than 8 x 8") with at least 10 pages (making 20 sides!). Please make it big enough to fit standard size photos.

This swap requires that there is at least one of the following included as pages:

• Acetate page
• A page made from material
• A page incorporating lace paper ie Maya road or KI memories style
. Shaped page
• Chipboard Page
• Painted page
• Newspaper page (I know this is not acid free but its at the discretion of receiver how they use these pages)

This is the minimum that all books must have but you can interpret this however you like.

Decorate each page minimally with papers, embellishments, rub ons, ribbons, bling, buttons etc, but please ensure you leave spaces for your swapee to add in their own photos and journaling.

There is no theme for this swap so papers, mixed media supplies and stash can be any colour you like.

Bind your book any way you like with book rings, BIA or ribbons etc

Each swapee should spend approx £5.00 on card, mix media, stash to make your book. Why not take advantage of some of the New Year sales from UKS sponsors. Also check out CAroline's closing down sale for lots of mixed media bargins.

If you fancy joining up, head on over to the thread and then PM me with the required details and i will add you to the list.

I cant wait to get started now, i fact i am this afternoon
